I bought a new tank for my slider turtle and when I filled it I forgot to treat the water for chlorine. I did let it sit for a day before adding the fish and my Buddy. After an hour I realized one of my catfish were dead and Buddy was scratching his eyes.. I immediatly took out all of the animals to treat the tank... Will the chlorine have any effect on my turtle(a long lasting effect) He seems to be fine now.. Just curious...

No, i think your turtle will be fine beings that you took care of the problem right away. Out of curiosity how old is your turtle and what size tank do you have???

Good luck with your buddy:)

He is almost 4 months old and 3 to 4 inches in length... and we bought a 29 gallon tank.
Im trying to find a good basking area for him. I have a log that is held up by suction cups right now... we had a 10 gallon for him and that was enough for him..
